[rrd-users] Lock issue

Hello all

I'm facing a lock problem in my software...
Sometimes, when the script tries to update a file, it return this message:
"could not lock RRD".

If I make a copy of the file, I can update it normally!
So, while I don't discover what is the problem, I'm doing this:

$ cp file.rrd file.rrd.new
$ rrdtool update file.rrd.new <DATA>
$ mv  file.rrd.new  file.rrd

I'm using python 2.4, python-rrdtool-1.4.5 and rrdtool-1.4.5.

Does anyone have faced any similiar issue?
